Salt River Schools Host Education Fair
Representatives from Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University and other state higher-education institutions came together for the Salt River Schools 2017 Education Fair on April 6.
More than a dozen SRS-related and Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community government-related booths and out-of-state high schools also participated in the education fair. The free four-hour event attracted more than 100 people to the Salt River Community Building. A free meal of hamburgers and hot dogs was provided.
The theme of the fair was “Reaching Higher, Asii knaamk, Si baic u:g i himc hek e mascamik.”

The event opened with the posting of the colors by the high school’s JROTC and a drumline performance. Salt River Schools Superintendent Louis Laffitte addressed the attendees a couple times, sharing the goals of the event and school district.
